The Beach Wheelchair Project is delighted to issue an invitation to a ‘Come and See, Come and Try’ event 13.00- 16.00 on Friday 13th February at the Hope Rooms, 34 Forth Street and (weather permitting) on the West Beach at North Berwick.
The Beach Wheelchair Project is working to provide a beach wheelchair hire/ loan scheme in North Berwick for children and adults with disabilities. A beach wheelchair is a specially designed all terrain wheelchair that can be pushed over soft or wet sand.
A range of beach wheelchairs will be on display. Participants will have the opportunity to book a taster session on the day or can simply try the different chairs in the comfort of the Hope Rooms (please note unfortunately there is not a hoist available in the Hope Rooms).
The Project will be asking for feedback on the day including ease of use, comfort and supportiveness etc. There will also be snacks and live music to cheer everyone up after braving the elements.
